Im originally not South African but I have a work permit and just got a permanent job paying me R7000 per month. Am I to pay income tax on my salary and if so how much and how do I apply as a first time tax payer. Thanks so much
I see a UIF is deducted from my salary every month, what's that about? Whats the difference between UIF and PAYE tax? If I must pay tax, how do I apply for tax as a first timer?
Thanks you so much for your assistance

UIF is Unemployment Insurance which is in the event you lose your job and need to earn a part of your salary from the state. PAYE is the income tax on your earnings. UIF is 1% of your Gross Salary and must get taken off. If you need to apply for a tax number then follow these instructions - Obtain a SARS Tax Number
